The New York Yankees have seemingly bounced back from a difficult start to the season, as they now have possession of the third and final Wild Card spot in the American League with a record of 36-26.
However, the team has dealt with more than their fair share of injury issues this season.
All three of their outfielders, Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Harrison Bader have missed some significant time recovering from injuries.
Judge is currently out after having crashed into the wall at Dodger Stadium on Saturday night.
On Twitter, Yankees insider Mike Daddino gave fans a grim reminder, that Stanton, Bader, and Judge have not played a single game together this season.

Bader began the season on the injured list with an oblique issue.
Judge injured his hip on a slide into third base against the Minnesota Twins back in mid-May.
Stanton was injured in April, but has since made his way back.
The 33-year-old was out with a hamstring issue.
Still, all three stars have missed significant time thanks to injuries and have yet to play a game together.
All three bats together give the Yankees a powerful lineup, but at no point this season have the Yankees been able to put all three of them on the same lineup card.
Both Bader and Judge are on the injured list for the second time this season.
Bader is currently recovering from a hamstring injury.
Despite this, the Yankees have been playing quite well and find themselves in the thick of the playoff race, but are still missing the contributions of some key players.NEXT: The Yankees Are Celebrating A Special Anniversary Today
